    The service and food were excellent, very good value for money, I will be back. My wife is ceoliac and all her food has to be Gluten free, Elizabeth's catered for this admirably and always checked with the cheff's to ensure her choice of the wonderful menue was safe for her, my wife had a wonderful 3 course meal without any problems.

    The staff were very attentive from the moment we walked in the door to when we left. All 3 courses were excellent. Not too large a portion and very well presented. We ate everything and felt comfortably full. The waiter/waitress constantly replenished our wine glasses throughout the meal. Excellent food, excellent wine, excellent setting and excellent staff. We will definitely be returning to Elizabeth's.

    This is the second time we have eaten at Elizabeth's and again, we were not disappointed. We had the three course menu for £23 a head. Starters were delicious and very good sized ( a small main meal!), mains were delicious and beautifully cooked and the puddings were delicious. Alcohol as is always, a little on the steep side, but at £62 for a three course meal with drinks for two, we didn't think it was too bad at all! Would definitely recommend!!!

    Comfortable and relaxed dining in Rochester's famous High Street. Superb cuisine with a delightful extra - a small cold soup on a hot day. The olives were succulent, not sharp; the field mushroom abounding with flavour. Just under £10 including a glass of fine wine made the lunch excellent value as well as a delightful experience. Service attentive, not intrusive.

    This has to be the best restaurant in Rochester High Street, in a short walking distance of the castle and cathedral. Very friendly, warm service. Amazing food, especially the lamb main course. Excellent quality and value for money. Good sized portions. You will be hard pushed to squeeze in a pudding after the starters and main!

    Myself and 3 friends visit Rochester every July for a particular event and for the past 3 years we have been to Elizabeth's for dinner. The food is really excellent, with a good choice at each course, and the service is friendly and welcoming. Elizabeth's is the highlight of our trip, every year we wonder if it will be as good, but we are never disappointed. The wine list is superb too. We've tried other restaurants in the area but this is the best!

    The welcome was warm as we arrived and we were led straight to our seats after our coats were taken. The presaentation of the menu and the offer of a welcome drink was immediate and we wre able to peruse the menu and order in good time. Service was attentive and yet unobtrusive. The food was good with an appropriate vegetarian alternative.

    Service is very good but at times to attentive. My glass was continuously being refilled which is very nice but felt like I was being rushed. The lobster and crab ravioli was amazing and one of the best starters I have ever eaten. Portion sizes were a lot bigger then I had expected, but the amount of chicken liver pâté I had with the beef fillet was nearly nonexistent. The wine selection is very good and staff are very knowledgable. Overall good, would recommend and revisit. Although listening to simply red's greatest hit wasn't a high point.

    This restaurant has been under it's present ownership for many years now . Throughout that time it has maintained consistently high standards in food, service and ambience. My most recent visit did nothing to make me change that opinion. One small didappointment involved the wine list, which once contained a number of fine wines at very competitive prices considering their quality - it is now much more standard.

    Elizabeth's of Eastgate Rochester is a unique themed restaurant which has been in existence for many years. Everthing about it was excellent, from the exposed beams and professional service, such niceties as stuffed olives and complentary soup tasters, I had fillet of beef as my main course. Even the coffee to finish with was served in a metal cafetierre with petit fours. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys good food.

    Recently booked a table at E of E and wasn't disappointed at all. My girlfriend and I opted for the 3 course Evening Meal menu which I feel was great value! The menu contained a good variety of options, and our selected courses were well presented, very well executed dishes. The service was also extremely good. Very attentive and knowledgeable staff who were always on hand if required. All in all, it was a real treat of an evening and we both left extremely satisfied. We will definitely be back, and perhaps try the delicious sounding main menu.

    Third time of eating here, very good on all three occassions. Was going to try somewhere new, glad we didn't as this was the best of all three occasions. They have also structured their pricing so it is now just that little bit cheaper to eat here. Starter, main, coffee and wine for £70 for two, can't complain. Both my wife and I were expecting our mains to be very rich, but were pleasantly surprised at how delicate they actually were, fine touch from the chef. Have eaten at several big name restuarants in London and Elizabeth's is easliy up there with them, if not better and definitely the best in Rochester.

    I have been going to Elizabeths for some time now and have never had either bad food or service. It is a small and welcomng restaurant serving fresh local produce cooked to a high standard - the Kent lamb is to die for. It is ideal for entertaining friends or going for a special meal for two. Although I have eaten in restaurants all over the world I will always go back to Elizabeths as it is my favourite eatery. Highly recommended.

Food was excellent -- scallops were cooked to perfection and our mains were equally as good. We didn't indulge in pudding, but did have lovely coffees. Would return again.

The restaurant could do with some renovation to modernise to bring it into line with most fine dining restaurants but don't let this put you off, the surroundings are lovely just a little dated.

    My husband and myself try to treat ourselves every couple of months to a meal at Elizabeth's. Although it is a little bit pricey, the food,the attention to detail and the dedication of the staff is second to none. The food is locally sourced and alway's so fresh. My only downside is i can't afford to eat there on a weekly basis. If you want to treat somebody for a birthday or special occasion try Elizabeth's.You won't be disappointed.

    Elizabeth's never disappoints: food is superb and staff very professional whilst also being friendly and helpful. The menu straightforward without being pretentious and the ingredients are locally sourced and very, very fresh. A little more expensive than many, but in my opinion well worth every penny. 3 course Dinner for two with pre-dinner drinks, an excellent bottle of Pinot Noir plus the chef's complimentary 'amuse bouche' pre-starter tasters, olives and bread around £125.

    This first time at Elizabeth's has left me with the feeling of 'Can I have a bit more, please?' It's so nice to be served by friendly and professional staff, who don't come round to ask 'everything alright for you?" My friend and I had three courses. The amuse-bouche was a nice treat and sent out a promise of what was to come. The food was lovely; imaginative dishes from fresh produce, cooked to perfection, accompanied by a smooth Merlot The coffee with petits fours on the menu gets full points from me. Good coffee (could've been a bit stronger, but that's probably my continental taste) with just a little bit of sweetness is all I want. I don't think I'll be able to afford to go every week, but once in a while will be a real treat.

    This was our first visit to Elizabeth's. What a lovely restaurant if stuck in the past a little. While the staff are wonderful, they are a little "stayed" in this day and age they need to relax a little - not too much, just a little. The decor is also a bit dated and although this is in a lovely building they really could do so much more with it. Having said that. This place is definately worth a visit, great food, great staff, nice atmosphere. They are definitely on a par with topes - another of my favourites in Rochester. Tried booking a table for this weekend just gone and they were full - gutted! So although I like to recommend them - make sure they leave a table for us!! ;-)
